1:31 am
as palestinians try first statehood at the u.n. those living in hebron struggle to keep their space here is part one of our special report from the west bank. of our hero. there are five hundred of them surrounded by a hundred and twenty thousand very very hostile most of. the settlers in hebron illegally being there. what's wrong with jews living room why is that illegal this is our land and the arabs know that they have made. this holy city and
1:32 am
we're going to stay in. iraq. but. there's no place on the. heat more than before because no one you could really. cool and say raise the expression. this is really be the place where you.
1:33 am
since the settlers arrived in one thousand eighty two we have lived on opposite sides of the road a second holy and once we could drive up and park in front of the house here and now only the settlers can i always have to have a plan to avoid being shot out or having stones thrown out of the. church. bell boy there was no way i scream here just the railings in the city put these up
1:34 am
to protect us from the settlers from something our house is surrounded by why screens and the settlers now through smallest stones that get through destroyed a screen with a why are some how to some of these you pass through some of them. stay out of this little close the door to definitely not closing the door that it is going to change a cage and then i do want to stay inside the seventh close the door get the camera out of here oh yes call the police turn the camera off it's early in the morning what do you want from us to me. is. being a pioneer like like in the beginning of the state of israel there are different types of swamps that people have to deal with and then there were swamps and malaria. now there are there are security problems and people who question our rights to living here and by living here we were stating
1:35 am
a fact and that the fact is is that the hub is the heart of the jewish country and it's where it all began and we just want to have a natural jewish life here. oh oh. oh. oh oh oh i. was. sure he was trying to come home kill kill him. oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah.
1:36 am
yeah. you're the one of the line went out there you were talking to jeff it's not mineral oh one of the year. zero. one zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero soldiers told you my boy wants to come how do they want that's him don't you see what he's doing. that's if they love you she's here to indicate to the boys below that i want to get the only one out of this today in this situation and. you know there's a saying israel and there are many many questions why are we here or may we give anything to our enemies and we are in the middle of a war even if we are not saying it aloud we. and i think this into phones are not questions the only answers we hear because of our petri ox that. the god promised
1:37 am
them this is the land belongs to us. alone. you can say this is the essence the hard core of the occupation because there are seven of those living inside the me because the center of a palestinian city and in the play the scene is there and they are very extreme and there is the army to protecting them and protecting the philistines against the settlers so you have all the elements for greek drama you know this is the essence of the occupation. we are living in a liberal democracy with a free press and all of the other things that we take for granted in a democracy and yet the reality in the occupied territories is very very different and surprisingly in spite of the free press in spite of the fact that you have hundreds of journalists covering the situation it remains the case that the israeli
1:38 am
public really doesn't know what is taking place in the occupied territories and i think they don't know because they choose not to know. there was a war you know. forty eight. a very long. cold war in which gained seventy eight percent of the country off by this time as it existed before. there was another war in nineteen sixty seven. the us took by the side and the moment this war was finished and the saudis. had called but there was a natural as. desire. by some people go and the exit to it was and after
1:39 am
a few weeks in the few months passed by and we suddenly saw it as no pressure at all on is to give back these territories then slowly some people have said why not why should we get to put all settlements the idea was to annex these territories wherever days a settlement idea is to annex the obstacle is that there is the palestinian people living there then the question arises how do you annex all just added to his wrists toward a half million or three million arabs palestinians condemn and tell some papers who say just just take these two to half million palestinians and push them out of palestine as we did to half the palestinian people in nine hundred forty eight so it just all the set leftist of the the extreme said let's see if the most extreme
1:40 am
out of five want. because the israeli soldiers put this on our necks because the settlers were throwing stuff they put it up to protect us which you know instead of chucking stone see through filthy water and other stuff that passes through the magic of the hemi and he would bring the only city in the west bank and gaza duckie by territory that's a mint. implanted at the heart of the city and we need the result of that is the slow death of polson in population center for the benefit of the expansion of these sentiments you can see this as a trend since two thousand since the beginning of the recent the father with the closures of all the entry points into the old city what we have two thousand is areas where no pulsing in vehicle movement is allowed another area where else and
1:41 am
these are not allowed to go through and no presence of palestinians is allowed and then you have closed shops. you can't pass through the you can't go feed to your hospital to your home can't go feed it to another village another city you can't go to your university. so this was a supermarket this was a photography studio. the shops used to be open earn their living here. and then four hundred settlers came to live here and they shut the whole town down suck. it up. living here is really coming back to the jewish roots the first your city we know
1:42 am
that abraham. rise it can a new bank and they can live buried here in the called the jewish tradition even i haven't even buried here so. bringing up a jewish family in the place of the jewish roots. the basis of the jewish people oh that was at. was. in any i country in the world it would be defined as fascists if not for us. bunch of five hundred also people whose aim in life is to die for all out i don't have sixty thousand palestinians home to consider strange as. these people who've come. set your forty or fifty years ago from your.
1:43 am
consider the inhabitants of taiwan who've been doubtful for five thousand years the strangest was. i thought i was i believe it's important for everyone to come and see what's going on here and not just. have them pressure from the news because the news is very slanted and when people come they shout that this is a place where people can walk around and visit and feel normal and then it's not what. what they see on the news were they think it's just a military. i think you know a lot of soldiers come here in the beginning they think you know. and this is this is you know like an army base and then they realize that this is not an army base this is a place where people. i
1:44 am
remember in the year two thousand two thousand and one and two thousand and two and three the whole fifty thousand inhabitants of the old she killed him went on the if you are one hundred days in the year that lasted for two to three years this caused palestinians to leave. the old city outside. i was i i was. i served in hebron in two different period of time a team first as soldier and then as two thousand and one till middles two thousand and two was done i came back as a commander in march two thousand and three two or three december and the first two three weeks of waiting to have been when i went down to the city. you're all
1:45 am
shocked you know you're obese and you're sent to wields shops and doors from tennis to me and celss you see sterilised streets where palestinians are forbidden to walk and only jews are allowed to walk here you have to fourscore few for all time and veils isn't a daily basis you go on walks in the streets and you find yourself in front of their feet is that probably in germany sounds you know it sounds familiar better than to us such as arabs to the gas chambers guys they are observes out with the stars of david a neighbor in the middle. and there was a group of my could platoon in the beginning thought refused to serve and have them we were shot through them believe what's going on you know you come to a place that we have two sets of law by definition that the orders are that you have to protect the settlers and if you see them attacking palestinians you're not allowed to arrest them. of course many other people who are
1:46 am
being sent and come back formed the. full faith that against the setlist because a settler just made it to the people as a servant to treat them medically as a kind of. personal security detachment whose job was to obey and serve the setlist but these are really all we have been interested to date it for many years now by the set less and instead one is fairly obvious a part of the settlement the settlement is closed the connect that with all.
1:47 am
the security presence of her own is heavy unfortunately there are people who are trying to kill us and many of the terrorists that wander around trying to blow themselves up anywhere from. haifa have have come out of control and the presence the military presence here is to protect us but it's also to try to weed out these terrorists and so to it that they don't just tell a fish and blow themselves up. although legally they are there to protect everyone to impose the law on everyone that the actual soldier stationed there understands his job as protecting the settlers and stopping palestinian terror. ok so we will start probably will be guided by. david whyld there on the
1:48 am
left and also fail david is the spokesman for foreign press of the settlement to have wrong and also as documenting our work i just offered him to speak with you guys to give their point of view and they refuse because they say they don't cooperate with traitors during the war time like today traitors like me so you will get only one perspective today and i'm sorry for that. i don't call him military you to show all who leads the group is a in any other normal country they would put him on trial for treason and hang him . but unfortunately israel hasn't reached that level yet of of justice. people express their opinions some people are put in jail when they express their opinions because it's called incitement and whatever he does what he does that's considered to be legitimate however i don't relate to them too much importance if
1:49 am
there are many jewish communities or not only jewish communities which understand the importance of her own to the jewish people the significance of cover on the significance of jews living here and people are able to express their support in different ways some pop people come to visit some people send letters some people wish to donate some of their money and i think that that proves without any doubt that people understand the importance of a jewish community here in rome. when we came to have our own in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven we didn't occupy a foreign city we came back home and came back to the first jewish city in the land of israel like you look at the faces. of those didn't of those jews who were killed thank god. surely not all of them asked to be. nearer to the settlers and their claim starts from we are a continuation to the jewish community who live there was deported from nearby the
1:50 am
massacre and that's not the truth of course there are some people who come from families who live there that agree with the system but there are lots of people who come from the jewish community who have brown who are against you know fundamentally against the sentiment of a fundamentally against the idea that six hundred fifty people can you know have all their rights in the back of one hundred fifty thousand people. usually in jewish holidays or weekends a lot of people coming out of settlers from k. i thought other people visitors from jerusalem from outside and one of the you know biggest fears of the idea for his that's sort of a palestinian state or was set down there you know one of the houses and i was just slot everyone all the faith is
1:51 am
a walk around the streets so how do you deal with it for sure we can learn all of these you pose corfield on the palestinians friday morning you divide all the palestinian neighbors around the settlement. you go to search all the elsa's finished run round. take ariston one of the house rule you put observers on go to sleep after three i was wake up it's time for the second round and again that's another aspect of what it was to live here. when they come to the house to ask me to connect all of the family with them in the kitchen all in one room they take off all the cloth this the bags the beds all of that and have in many time they come through the house this is all of the family outside but i see so many of us like this and i don't care i remember once one
1:52 am
night we state from one o'clock after midnight until four o'clock four o'clock and was laying on our heads and they said they want to the house and they know nothing of the house. nine hundred sixty eight after the six day war and the great. military victory that god gave to us. is really going to really back then it wasn't sure what we can do theories we've liberated sixty seven there to stay that jews move there don't let jews move there i tell you what your living in israel gets it will never get together they advertise in the joy newspapers because but they stuff downtown have a park hotel. and those sort of an olympic sized swimming pool and no great music going to denny's element but yet a one star hotel windows provided if you pay extra money thirty fairly is
1:53 am
registered to the best of a service. just then the government decided to take him out of there and to put into the military government building which was annoyed went to. police for close. and then they might do plight and barely the military government could not function anymore to just turn to me to the government building a private settlement so the government decided that let them take out of let's put them into a new settlement called k. at alba in one thousand seventy gulden mia came along says i got the solution and that solution is called. here and she built this beautiful beautiful summer with low just mortgages cheap housing a little bit sized women full really zone a jacuzzi tennis courts just came a big fascist dominated settlement the center of all fascist elements that is that
1:54 am
and then to start that funky at alba. again back in to have one so slowly little step off the lid step off the lid step off the step they occupied is fond of curve on where as you know even in this spot the sadness of a small minority indeed that all lies that majority introduced quite a health club one. this was the b.c. street in hebron made after everybody came shiro the farmer's people from the neighboring towns out of goodies i know nobody comes in here they have shot everything i have while since the intifada they closed entrance. but. we used to go in and out when the settlers could not see. beg for them during world at the door shot he says now we're getting in from the back i'm climbing over the
1:55 am
neighbors through from upstairs and over while someone is in and all this trouble to keep the settlers out of the house and there are the settlers and so that's where they relieve. sharon and also you know they are the colonists around us stop in the. wrong stuff and look look there we're surrounded by settlers and soldiers stop and read the boiler so. i have no doubt that if today another two hundred thousand jews moved into today in some area a lot of the arabs who are here to come in we have to throw them out i don't know them i don't know the today i favor that i don't know looking for forced explosions very bloody but i have a feeling that if they see masses of people coming over to take their homes away from just to settle in the land here a lot of them would just leave. you
1:56 am
know any normal human being have a specific sense that was you know beyond this point i can take it what you're going to take it to the war so i'm going to have have to leave basically these. two weeks ago if i had to go to really. and. the territory is the main core i am not among those who think that this this beauty in the middle east is a religious one it is a nation listing one and the main disputers of both land look even at the transfer there was a real transfer and for nobody talks about it there is something about fifteen twenty twenty five souls of people who all had to leave their homes it is just
1:57 am
because those crazy people just the neighbors until they had to leave.
1:58 am
1:59 am
